    This was a wonderful experience up close swimming with sea lions. The sea lions are numerous on the land and a few swam out close to us. Each boat is allowed only 30 minutes in the water to give space and respect to the animals. We felt like that was plenty of time in the water. We were comfortable in the wet suits they provided. This company was very helpful and careful. We were the only guests that spoke English but they translated for us.

    Our bilingual guide Juan was excellent, very knowledgeable. He made our trip an unforgettable experience. We didn’t get to do the whale watching (January is out of whale season), but nevertheless it was so worth it. We got to see sea lions, sea elephants and penguins. Also guanacos (similar to lamas), patagonic hares, armadillos, patagonic ostriches, owls... Our driver was also very good, and would be very attentive for wild animals, pointing them out to us, stopping or going very slowly to take pictures. Our van was comfortable, with good A/C. A wonderful day. Note: even if the weather may seem hot in Madryn, do take a jacket, as it may get very windy (and thus cold) momentarily.

    We had a great day. Our tour operator Hugo was fantastic. He obviously loves what he does and his positivity made the day. We saw hundreds of animals. Worth every penny.

    While on a South American Cruise, one of the stops was Puerta Madryn and we opted for an excursion to this wildlife refuge. It is one of the largest Magellan Penguin colonies in the world with 400,000 birds living there. They spend from August to March there melting and raising chicks before there Winter migration. It's about a two hour drive from Purta Madryn to the park, with some comfort stops. The reserve itself is very nice with restrooms and a few small shops and cafes. You walk among the penguins on trail and boardwalks. Easy and level for the most part. About 2 km round trip. Saw thousands of penguin. The birds were close; easy to see and photograph. Note that this is in a remote area and most visitors arrive by Tour bus, so it is very busy. Well worth seeing if you love wildlife.

    The highlight was seeing the penguins, which we were able to do up close. Amazing how they just stood there and let us take our pictures. Also saw Sea Lions and seals. Biggest negative is the two hour drive to get there and another two hours to get back. Most of it on bumpy, gravel, dirt roads...which was not the most comfortable. Had a okay lunch at a local restaurant. Served a salad and meat. Some tables got meat and French fries...we were not given a choice. Also had some red wine. Many liked it, but we were not impressed. In retrospect, we might have preferred a boat trip around the peninsula and taken our photos from the boat...would have been more comfortable.

    The boat ride to see the toninas was cheaper to book during the day trip (about a third of rhe online trip advisor option price) and well worth doing as the boat ride itself was comfortable and we saw many toninas. The penguin colony is a must see as this is the largest accessible colony anywhere. Our guide was very good but was let down by not having a working microphone which made listening to her difficult on the often bumpy and noisy minivan drive.

    After waiting for quite some time (as others hadn't disembark in a timely fashion) we were picked up from the pier with a group of others from our ship.

    The drive is 175kms so about 2 1/2 hours with the last hour on gravel roads. It is a bumpy ride so if this is not your preference you may want to rethink it. Our driver Pedro did his very best to make it as smooth as possible even driving in the middle of the road at times to avoid as many bumps as possible.

    Our guide Beto was informative and told us about the region, the wildlife and life in Puerto Madryn.

    We stopped first at a check point going into the Peninsula as they want to ensure groups are travelling with official guides.

    We had a stop at a rest stop and then proceeded to the ranch were we had a good lunch. Empanada, salad, BBQ lamb and dulce de leche flan. Everything was prepared nicely although the service was just alright.

    After lunch we went to the Nature Reserve to visit the penguins where they say there are between 800,000 - 1 million birds. It was amazing! The Magellan penguins are everywhere and you can get quite close to them. There is a pathway that they ask you stay on but the penguins go wherever they want so they were often crossing the designated pathways. There were many babies and it was quite noisy with the chatter of the birds everywhere. We spent about an hour there in total but we could have spent all day there - it was so awesome to see them in such a natural environment. We walked down to the beach and watched them on the sand and swimming in the water.

    Approximately 6kms up the coast we visited the sea lions and elephant seals. The vantage point is from a cliff so you can't really get up close. But you can certainly hear them. We were a little pressed for time at this stop as they wanted to make sure we arrived back on time. We came back to the pier just at the all aboard time.

    Long day but completely worth it.
